HarryTho 4/10 Natalee Holloway Commentary

Topics: Natalee Holloway

Despite what should be a calamitous day in the Natalee Holloway case, once again, we have little news. Most importantly, John Q. Kelly's response to the Joe Tacopina's Motion to Dismiss for inconvenience remains quiet. No one has posted John Q. Kelly's response which was due last Friday. Either the researchers in New York have lost interests or the Supreme Court of the state of New York are recusing the filings in this case. With the unusual silence, I am suspecting that some cease-fire may have been agreed upon between Kelly and Joe Tacopina.

On the Aruba front itself, we have a revelation from MF over at the Freedom Blog that a Kelly Castillo of Arkansas and a friend visited Police Chief Dompig and declared that Natalee was alive on the island of Aruba a few days after Beth and her posse landed. Natalee refused to go back to Alabama, because of the abuse that she suffered there. Although this declaration reads a little suspicious, it does conform to revelations in Natalee's alleged pregnancy letter that coincidentally was postmarked form Arkansas. Interestingly, Kelly Castillo's declaration resembles the suspicions of Aruban Detective Nicholaas' hunches, aired in the first few days of the investigation.

Regrettably, it may be coming to light that our worst fears in this case are materializing: Natalee was abused at home. Julia Renfro may have hit the nail on the head many months ago. I pray that this new information proves inaccurate for the sake of the people of Alabama. How will they ever live this down?

Additionally, the Bon Dia article that published Kelly Costillo's declarations mentioned some "taped" statements alleging an intent to harm the island of Aruba.

Once again, this information could be far more damaging than the cat-spitting accusations of the past 10 months.

Lastly, we have some disturbing news from the Caribbean Newspaper that the Chavez of Venezuela issue with land acquisition intentions in the Antilles is more than rumor.

Caribbean Net News: Antillean PM concerned about threat from Chavez

"She confirmed in an interview that the possible and impending threat is now closely monitored by the Dutch defence ministry as part of the islands' upgraded security plan, given growing evidence that peace between the Antilles and Venezuela could collapse at anytime.

Careless and potentially explosive comments made by the Dutch defence minister Henk Kamp , were described by her government ministers, as nothing short of a 'declaration of war'"

Conveniently, during the Dutch-Venezuelan talks, the George Washington (CVN 73) Carrier Strike Group will be deployed in the Caribbean Sea for two months, commencing on 4 April 2006. The carrier strike group is on station now!

GW CSG to Deploy to Caribbean Sea

"This deployment will support U.S. Southern Command's objective for enhanced maritime security in its area of responsibility."

When we juxtapose this deployment with Secretary of State Rice's "severe diplomatic consequences" warning to President Hugo Chavez over the attack by his supporters upon the US Ambassador to Venezuela, we have a recipe for a first strike option. These next few months will be tense times for the Southern Command.

Tomorrow, due to prior engagements, I may not get an editorial out. If news breaks late this evening, I will try to get something out early in the AM; otherwise, my next editorial will be Wednesday 12 April 2006.

With Aloha,
